This work addresses this particular point in women's history for those of us who choose motherhood.
Life with an infant contains the paradox of isolation and connection. In one sense, a new mom is likely to feel over-touched, overwhelmed, and abundantly connected to her new child. Simultaneously, she may feel ripped apart from her usual support networks at work or other aspects of her life that are foundational to her identity.
In contemporary society, moms and other parents often reach out to support groups through the beacon of their mobile phones, often while they are up at night caring for their infant's needs. Smartphones, likewise, contain this paradox of isolation and connection. Isolating us further from our immediate surroundings, they connect us to the world of people in similar situations.
These works all play with the paradoxes of isolation and connection and of the virtual and the physical. Visceral globs of paint puncture the sleek surfaces of our devices in the shapes of iPhone icons.
